This is my super fast go to smoothie. It’s just frozen fruit and kefir and protein powder. I have found that having a little extra protein at meals balances my hormones in a very effective way. I’m super picky about my protein powders and this is the only one I really use anymore. There are two types: a Plant-Based version and a Whey Protein version. They come in two flavors, vanilla and chocolate flavors. When I add this to my smoothies I never have to sweeten it and it gives it a creamy rich flavor that tastes like a milkshake. I buy this so often that the awesome people at Spring of Life have generously given us one-time use coupon code for you to get 20% off any of their products! Just enter this code on the Amazon checkout. page. This is a fast and easy way to enjoy your kefir and get tons of nutrients.Read More
As I opened the blender the smell of peaches, kefir, and vanilla hit me, and the memories flooded back. I felt my heart open and heard a voice in my head, “Do you remember the first time you made a peach and kefir smoothie? Do you remember how scared and sick you were? Do you remember how you used to eat and how much that has changed?” It’s true—everything is different now and each time I have this smoothie, the smell reminds me of that. I feel grateful and I remember just how much my body loves me. I hope you’ll have a moment in your life when you fall in love with your body—when you discover how it’s here to serve you and care for you. Maybe you’ll have tender moments when you realize how it constantly turns your food into the cells of your body. We have a contract with food and our body has signed the deed. But you get to choose what it receives. Choose wisely – it can make all the difference.Read More
Grapefruits have not only vitamin C but also Vitamin A. A diet high in vitamin A and fiber can fight off the effects of seasonal allergies by boosting your immune system. The fiber in the fruit gives your gut bacteria the fuel they need to make short-chain fatty acids, which help control any allergic reactions. Meanwhile, the vitamin A helps those same fatty acid cells continue to function properly. My daughter came up with this super easy recipe when she wanted a superfast smoothie. She had an abundance of grapefruits from my grapefruit trees so she squeezed some of the juice into her kefir and voila! Delicious and the easiest way to get your morning kefir.Read More

I love to top this with fresh coconut. Toasting the coconut is even tastier, but it’s not necessary but is delicious. I’m always in a hurry and hungry and can hardly wait to eat this yummy smoothie. If you don’t have coconut kefir, no worries. Use regular kefir and add some extra shredded coconut to the smoothie.Read More
You can add or change the toppings. Here are some I recommend: Granola, flaked coconut, walnuts, chocolate chips, sliced almonds, pecans, goji berries, or fresh fruit like blueberries, cut up bananas and strawberries, or dragon fruit!Read More

Researchers have found that raspberries contain a phytonutrient called rheosmin, or raspberry ketone. This can raise metabolism in our fat cells by increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and heat production, thereby burning fat rather than storing it.
Eat your raspberries!! You can add granola for an extra topping.
This is one of the first recipes I made almost every day when I first started with kefir. I used regular cottage cheese and then later on I learned to make kefir cottage cheese, which makes this smoothie really creamy and rich.Read More
This smoothie is made with Greek yogurt which is food for bacteria in your gut. It’s important to eat different types of cultured foods because they have different strains of bacteria in them which enhance the bacteria that live inside of you.Read More
